To ensure public safety, support security strategies and facilitate the production of this year’s Oscars on Feb. 9, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the city of Los Angeles have finalized street closure plans around the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood.
To accommodate the construction of press risers, fan viewing areas and pre-show stages along the Oscars red carpet, Hollywood Boulevard will be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive beginning at 3 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 2, and remain closed until 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 12.
MTA subway trains will bypass the Hollywood & Highland station after the last regularly scheduled train on Saturday, Feb. 8, until the first scheduled train after 6 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 10. Service at the station will resume with the first scheduled train after 6 a.m.
Between Sunday, Jan. 26, and Oscar Sunday, Feb. 9, additional streets and sidewalks will be closed for varying periods, including Orchid Alley, Hawthorn Avenue, Orange Drive, Yucca Street, Wilcox Avenue, McCadden Place and more.
Details of the closures and maps of affected areas are available from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the 4th and the 13th District City Council field offices, and on the Academy’s website at oscars.org/closures.
The 92nd Oscars will begin at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 9, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live on ABC. “Oscars: Live on the Red Carpet” will air at 3:30 p.m.
